WordPress Website Design & Development
We build fast, responsive, secure and scalable WordPress websites that are SEO friendly and optimised for exceptional user experiences.
WordPress Website Development for Customer-Focused Organisations
WordPress is a flexible and extensible website development platform that our software engineers can leverage for virtually endless possibilities. Whatever your business requirements, our senior team have extensive experience in designing, building and supporting enterprise-level WordPress websites.
Enterprise-Grade WordPress Clients
WordPress Development Services
Need an SEO optimised lead generation website? Perhaps an online learning platform? Or even a subscription-based service distributing multimedia content? Whatever your project requirements, we have the skills expertise to leverage all that WordPress has to offer in order to make your project a success.
Custom Plugin Development
Need to extend WordPress functionality in a way that hasn’t been conceived before? Our development team are well-versed in creating completely customer plugins for WordPress, as well as extending existing plugins where existing functionality is limited.
Whether you want to utilise WooCommerce to run your online store through WordPress, or need a content website to wrap your existing eCommerce platform (e.g. Shopify, BigCommerce, Magento, etc) we can draw on our vast experience to advise on the best strategy for success.
3rd Party API Integration
Over the years we’ve built countless integrations with external web services and in-house backend systems via JSON, Rest, XML-RPC and Soap APIs. Whether it’s a CRM or DAM, a Marketing Automation Tool, online calculators, or a custom database, we’ll find the optimum way to connect disparate data sources.
Progressive Web Apps
PWAs look and feel like native apps. They work when you’re offline and they can be accessed by anyone without the need for an app store. Our team can help you take advantage of this emerging technology by designing and developing a website that leverages WordPress and Service Workers to behave just like it was a native app, meaning you only need to invest in one technology to reach all of your users.
Whether your audience requires a mobile-first or desktop-first approach, we build highly optimised and responsive WordPress themes that work beautifully, no matter what device is used to access them. Where a more pragmatic approach is required, we can also customise and extend off-the-shelf themes to suit your brand style guide.
Customers increasingly expect personalised online experiences, but how do you deliver them, and what do you personalise? Our team are experts in making sense of your business data and leveraging it to create highly bespoke and personal experiences using WordPress. By taking into account multichannel interactions and identifying your customers’ needs as early as possible in their journey, their online experience becomes easier and more fulfilling.
Content Management System Training
Whether your team is new to WordPress, or Content Management Systems in general, we provide tailored training as standard with all new website builds. Business-aware user account permissions and a clearly labelled interface help to make engagement with your new platform intuitive and easy.
WordPress Website Migration
We partner with WPEngine to provide an optimised hosting environment for your WordPress site that is fast, reliable, and secure. Their Digital Experience Platform powers over 500,000 websites and accounts for 5% of all internet traffic across the world.
WordPress Support & Optimisation
As an open-source tool, WordPress regularly receives updates from the international development community to improve features, functionality and most importantly, security. Our WordPress Support & Optimisation service ensures your investment is maintained and kept up-to-date while also providing you with a dedicated team to enhance and add new features.
Our service delivers a help desk with a single point of contact and a pool of trained Software Engineers and Web Developers, Project Managers, System Administrators, and User Experience Designers to call upon to manage, maintain and optimise all future website activity.
“From the get go we had a very clear picture of the stages/sprints and as we moved through the project there was picture-perfect clarity of what was required from us. We were in good hands the whole way through.”
“I’m very happy with the service provided by the Sitback Support & Optimisation team - they’re flexible, fast to respond to support tickets, small enough to care but large enough to have the ‘power to deliver’.”
“We made the decision to go with Sitback knowing we had very challenging requirements: a long list of features, very demanding timeline & high quality expectations. We needed a safe pair of hands & that’s what we got.”

Why Choose WordPress?
34% of the web already uses WordPress, and the reason is built into the WordPress mission statement:
“WordPress is software designed for everyone, emphasising accessibility, performance, security, and ease of use. We believe great software should work with minimum set up, so you can focus on sharing your story, product, or services freely.”
Out of the box, it is already a formidable web application. However, with the correct coding practices, coupled with select plugins, WordPress quickly turns into a high-performance application with granular control over code concatenation, minification, compression, page and component-level caching, database interactions, image optimisation, and content delivery techniques. The result is a lightning-fast website, making both your visitors and search engines happy.
The core WordPress platform is incredibly secure, and thanks to the dedicated WordPress security team, updates are regularly released to keep it that way. As long as you choose a development team you can trust, a secure hosting platform, and the website and any themes or plugins are kept up-to-date, your WordPress website will remain protected.
On The Go Management
Have a great idea but not near your computer to upload it to your website? With the WordPress mobile app, you have the power of publishing in your hands, making it easy to write, edit, and publish content to your site, as well as check stats on the go.
WordPress ships with intuitive media management tools to make it easy to keep on top of your content. From inline ‘what you see if what you get’ content editors and flexible page builders, to fast image upload, editing and display. Plus, with plugins available for a range of video and audio providers like Brightcove, Wistia, YouTube, and many more, there are countless ways to distribute media through your website.
Make your website do more for less - WordPress can be easily extended with over 54,000 plugins ranging from online stores, galleries, mailing lists, forums, analytics, and much more.
15% of the population have some kind of disability. We ensure the websites we build are as inclusive to as many users as possible by following WCAG standards and best practices while also considering the needs of your audience. Factors covered include keyboard navigation, web forms, headings, contrast ratio, images, and making all text accessible to screen readers
Frequently Asked Questions about WordPress
First released in 2003, WordPress is a powerful Content Management System that can be used to build blogs, landing pages, online stores, forums or virtually any other website you could ever need.
WordPress itself is free software, however ongoing maintenance, hosting and feature development needs to be factored in to any new WordPress build. Costs range from $5,000 (AUD) for simple WordPress sites, to $150,000+ for applications with complicated integrations and functionality.
While it originated as a blogging platform, WordPress has grown up to become a fully-featured content management system. Powerful content editing features, multilingual and multisite capabilities, deep integration with third-party tools, and early adoption of emerging functionality mean that WordPress can be adapted to virtually any business requirements.
Aside from the fact that there is no license fee to pay, the most obvious reasons to choose WordPress are because it is fast to build upon, and it provides an excellent experience for website administrators and content creators.
Like any software, if a WordPress website is badly constructed it will be insecure, and a WordPress website is only ever as good as the development team that built it. However, if the WordPress website is kept up-to-date with the latest security updates, hosted in a secure environment and built by an experienced team who understand how to mitigate risk, then your WordPress website will be as safe as any other platform available.
